Default loopback network device

Hi all,
It's possible to create an alias of a device? Something like a device
loN that all it's traffic is send to ethN, so ethN and loN are equivalent.


It's for a bridged setup, i'm not trying to setup another IP on a device.

Thanks!
Jordi

Some wireless module create multiple "name" for the same device,
like wifi0, wlan0 and eth0. Then technically this must be possible.
But I don't know any user space tool to do that.

Maybe you are wrong thinking, having multiple "name" for
the same device will help you! What is you main problem ?

You don't set up loopback devices to do this.
brctl is used to describe bridged interfaces. If you want this to be set up
on boot you can put the commands in /etc/rc.d/rc.local (though its late in
the boot process if that matters for you).
